19th AlmaLaurea Report on the Profile and Employment Status of University graduates

The 19th AlmaLaurea Report on the Profile and Employment Status of Italian graduates has been published, which performed a survey of the 71 AlmaLaurea Consortium universities on the educational performance of over 270,000 graduates in 2016 and involved, for the part on Employment Status, 620,000 first and second-level graduates from 2015, 2013 and 2011, interviewed after one, three and five years from graduation, respectively.

The survey on employment status included a total of 4,246 graduates from the University of Brescia. Data focuses on the analysis of the performance of graduates of 3-year Bachelor's Degrees and 2-year Master's Degrees from 2015 and contacted one year after graduation and on performance of 2-year Master's degree graduates from 2011 contacted five years after graduation.

Graduates of 3-year Bachelor's Degrees, one year after graduation

The survey involved 1,480 3-year Bachelor's Degree graduates from 2015, contacted one year after graduation (in 2016). Given that a considerable proportion of first-level graduates, 42% overall, continues the educational pathway with a Master's Degree, the data below concerns the employment performance of those who chose not to continue studying after graduation and, instead, to enter directly into the world of work. Isolating, therefore, the Bachelor's Degree graduates from the University of Brescia who have never enrolled on a Master's Degree Programme (56%), a survey can be made of their employment status after one year from graduation. The rate of employment (the employed include, according to the ISTAT definition, even those undergoing paid training) is 87% (the regional average is 79%; the national average, 68%), whilst the rate of unemployment (calculated as a proportion of the workforce, i.e. of those who are already part of, or are about to enter, the job market) is 9% (13% for the Lombardy region).

"Studying at the University of Brescia is confirmed as an excellent investment," affirms the Dean,  Maurizio Tira,  "This is proved by the AlmaLaurea data on the high rate of employment among Bachelor's and Master's Degree graduates, which is higher than the regional and national average."

22% of those in employment benefit from a permanent contract (including progressive entitlement employment contracts), whilst 18% are self-employed (freelance, own business, entrepreneurs, etc.). The average monthly salary is 1,281 euro after tax. But how many work doing that which they studied for (degree taken in order to practise the job they do and the use of the skills learned at university in their work)? For every 100 graduates, 69 consider their degree very useful or useful for the job they do.

2-year Master's Degree graduates one and five years after graduation

There are 541 2-year Master's Degree graduates from 2015 contacted one year after graduation and 581 graduates from 2011 involved in the survey five years after graduation.

One year after graduation, 92% of Master's Degree graduates from 2015 are employed, including those in paid training (the regional average is 79%; the national average, 71%). The rate of unemployment, calculated as a proportion of the workforce, is 4%. Of every 100 in employment, 47 benefit from a permanent contract (including progressive entitlement contracts), whilst 7% are self-employed. The average monthly salary is 1,387 euro after tax; 52% believe the degree awarded to be very useful or useful for the job they do.

Five years after graduating from the Master's Degree Programme in 2011, 94% of graduates are employed. The rate of unemployment is 2%.

Of those in employment, 63% have permanent contracts (including progressive entitlement contracts), whilst 23% are self-employed. The average monthly salary is 1,615 euro after tax; 57 graduates out of every 100 believe the degree awarded to be very useful or useful for the job they do. Where do they work? 89% of graduates work in the private sector, 10% in the public sector. The remainder work for non-profit organisations (2%). 59% work in services, whilst 39% work in industry. Only a marginal proportion work in agriculture.
